Often technology devices such as smartphones begin to “unfinished” after more than half a year of use. Most users will blame the device for poor quality, but the truth is we are the first to blame. Are you wondering why your phone battery is charging evenly even if your only job is to plug it in? Let’s explore why!
1. You always leave the charger in an electrical outlet
This is a habit that many people often suffer when always leaving the charger in the electrical socket. Because although not connected to the device, there is still a small electrical current running through the charger, which makes them both quickly broken down, which can cost you about VND 200,000 per year. In addition, a voltage stream can slowly build up to ignite flammable objects or short-circuit the transformer resulting in a fire.
2. You always charge the battery to 100%
If you always charge the phone battery to 100%, it will shorten the life of the device quite a bit there. Because each battery has a certain charging cycle and if you always charge to 100%, it will shorten the number of cycles. The general rule of thumb for safety is to keep the battery at 20-80%.
3. Play gas until 0% before charging
This is extremely wrong thinking! It is extremely harmful if you leave it at 0% before you start charging. Because as above, the phone battery always has a certain number of cycles. So if you leave the battery dead, the more you will destroy the battery charging life.
4. Leave the battery charged overnight
On average, an adult sleeps 8 hours a night, which is the amount of time the battery will charge over and over again. In theory as above, this will reduce the allowable cycle of charging and destroying your phone quickly. Besides, overnight charging also heats up the device, affecting the internal devices.
5. Use your phone while charging
You should not both use the phone while charging because the battery will have to do two tasks at the same time as both active and full power leads to overload. If there is a call, you can unplug it, listen to the phone, then plugged in is the most effective solution.
6. Charge the phone battery when it is over 20%
According to the aforementioned theory, continuous charging destroys a battery’s life very quickly. So let us really need it when we need it. The best threshold to start charging is below 20% and above at least 5%.
7. Charge the battery but leave it intact
One of the battery’s biggest enemies is heat. The hotter the battery, the faster life will decrease. So while charging the battery while retaining the case, your phone has no room to release air, making the phone heat up even faster. So when charging, remember to remove the case!
8. You use generic chargers and cheap chargers
Every phone has a compatible charger so don’t try to replace it with a different brand or a cheap charger. If you do not use a suitable charger, the power transferred to the battery while charging may be too little or too much. This results in the battery being hot quickly or charging forever still not fully charged.
The best charger for your phone is what you get when you buy it with your phone. If lost, go to a place to buy a phone, or be sure the type of charger you recently purchased is the same model or has a code compatible with your current device.
9. Using the application to control battery charging improperly
Free and low charge charging apps can help you keep track of your phone. However, make sure you buy the genuine or effective app. Apps developed by unknown sources or censored by the phone manufacturer may not be compatible with the battery condition and may affect your battery rating.
So before using a phone app, please verify the source is reliable and suitable for your device. Do not be cheap and make the phone more and more broken offline!
10. Charge the battery from a laptop
Many types of laptops allow users to charge their batteries from a power source. However, charging is usually longer than a standard outlet and does not activate the fast charging option button. So if you want to charge the battery quickly and safely, plug it into a regular power outlet.
